Harvested Over 7000 Tomatoes For The Year!

Today's harvest includes 77 Matt's Wild Cherry, 13 Snow White, 11 SunSugar, 4 SunGold(1), 3 Husky Cherry Red(2), 3 Honkin' Big Black Cherry, 3 Golden Mama, 2 Persimmon, SunGold(2), Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, Hungarian Heart, Sweet 100, Jaune Flamme and Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total of 122 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 7000 tomatoes for the year (7042)! Based on taste alone we've had a very good year and the numbers will also show it's been a productive one as well.

However, don't let the numbers fool you. What's getting harvested are mostly tiny tomatoes. Only Hungarian Heart had any size. In fact, it's possible that these 122 tomatoes don't weigh one pound. Big numbers, tiny size.

We've now harvested over 2100 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes (2145).

More Plants Ready To Be Pulled

Today's harvest includes 61 Matt's Wild Cherry, 7 Husky Cherry Red(2), 6 Snow White, 5 Honkin' Big Black Cherry, 4 SunGold(1), 4 SunSugar, 2 Sweet 100, 2 Vorlon, 2 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, Husky Cherry Red(1), SunGold(2), Cassidy's Folly, Portuguese Neighbor (11 ounces), Large Pink Anna(2), Persimmon and Porkchop for a total of 100 tomatoes.

No real tomato news in the numbers. The Portuguese Neighbor will be the last beefsteak of any size for 2011. It's overripe red on one side and green on the other. I don't know if it is even salvageable.

There are more plants ready to pull. Lime Green Salad, Bloody Butcher and Cassidy's Folly can go. I need to check but I think that was the last tomato for Portuguese Neighbor and it can go as well.

Harvested Over 2000 Matt's Wild Cherry Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 76 Matt's Wild Cherry, 6 SunGold(1), 4 SunSugar, 4 Snow White, 3 Garden Peach, 2 Persimmon, 2 Green Doctors Kiwi(2), 2 Husky Cherry Red(1), 2 Husky Cherry Red(2), Vorlon, SunGold(2), Hungarian Heart, Honkin' Big Black Cherry and Sweet Carneros Pink for a total of 106 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 2000 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes (2007)! This obliterates the high harvest number for a single season and a particular year. Also, we've harvested an eye-popping 1186 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes just this month!

Other items of note: I believe it was yesterday (I've been tardy in updating the totals) we harvested over 3000 back yard tomatoes (now at 3024). And today we harvested over 450 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes (452).

So far for August we've harvested a bountiful 2671 tomatoes. Lots of cherry tomatoes, but still a really good month so far.

Matt's Wild Cherry Will Shatter My High Harvest Number

Today's harvest includes 60 Matt's Wild Cherry, 7 SunGold(1), 4 Husky Cherry Red(2), 3 SunSugar, 3 Husky Cherry Red(1), 3 Sweet 100, 3 Honkin' Big Black Cherry, 2 Large Pink Anna(2), 2 Persimmon (6 ounces, 6 ounces), Garden Peach, Snow White, Kellogg's Breakfast, Oaxacan Jewel(2), Red Zebra, Green Grape, Large Pink Anna(1), Aunt Ruby's German Green(1), Vorlon, Green Zebra(1) and Golden Mama for a total of 98 tomatoes.

I did a little research last night. Our largest one year harvest total for an individual plant was 1945 Red Currant tomatoes in 2008. Matt's Wild Cherry (currently at 1876 harvested tomatoes) will surpass that amount, perhaps by the end of the week. And we still have 4 1/2 months to go!

We've now harvested 450 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes and over 250 SunGold(1) tomatoes (252)!

I didn't notice yesterday that Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe and Green Grape reached 100 harvested tomatoes.

Harvested Over 6500 Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 61 Matt's Wild Cherry, 6 Garden Peach, 6 SunGold(1), 6 Husky Cherry Red(2), 3 Husky Cherry Red(1), 2 SunSugar, 2 Sweet 100, 2 Orange And Green Zebra, 2 Golden Mama, 2 Oaxacan Jewel(2), 2 Snow White, Kellogg's Breakfast, Honkin' Big Black Cherry, Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, Green Grape and Haley's Purple Comet for a total of 99 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 6500 tomatoes for the year (6534)! Also, we've harvested over 3500 tomatoes from the front yard.

Also, we've harvested over 1800 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes (1816)! As I suspected, the Matt's Wild Cherry harvest picked up a bit. And we've harvested over 300 SunSugar tomatoes (301).

The volume has dropped dramatically. I harvested around 2 pounds of tomatoes today, that's all.

Harvested SunGold(2)!

Saturday's harvest includes 86 Matt's Wild Cherry, 8 Garden Peach, 8 SunGold(1), 8 Husky Cherry Red(2), 6 Sweet 100, 6 Husky Cherry Red(1), 3 Snow White, 3 Green Grape, 2 SunSugar, 2 Green Zebra(2) (not Green Zebra), 2 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, 2 Large Pink Anna(2), 2 Golden Mama, SunGold(2) (new), Green Zebra(1), Bloody Butcher, Haley's Purple Comet, Cassidy's Folly, Coyote (not Coyote), Hungarian Heart and Green Doctors Kiwi(2) for a total of 146 tomatoes.

Today's harvest includes 45 Matt's Wild Cherry, 8 SunGold(1), 6 Garden Peach, 5 Husky Cherry Red(2), 3 Snow White, 2 Green Zebra(2) (not Green Zebra), 2 Haley's Purple Comet, Green Zebra(1), Husky Cherry Red(1), Persimmon (8.5 ounces), Golden Mama, Patio, Honkin' Big Black Cherry, SunSugar, Kellogg's Breakfast (12.5 ounces), Oaxacan Jewel(2), Sweet 100, Coyote (not Coyote), Large Pink Anna(2), Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red and Green Doctor's Kiwi(2) for a total of 85 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 300 Husky Cherry Red(1) tomatoes (303) and over 1700 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes (1755)!

The reason the Matt's Wild Cherry harvest dropped on Sunday was that I harvested later in the day. The light makes all the tomatoes look ready and I know that's not the case. So I harvested conservatively. I expect the harvest to increase tomorrow, though the numbers will start to drop soon.
